  author={F. Chen and D. Tseng and S. Reddy and A. Daud and S. Swetter},
E ruptive melanocytic nevi (EMN) have been described as the sudden-onset development of numerous melanocytic nevi in association with bullous diseases or conditions of immunosuppression, including patients with human immunodeficiency virus, or those who have undergone chemotherapy or organ transplantation. In the recent literature, EMN have been described in patients receiving sorafenib, a multikinase inhibitor,1 and vemurafenib, a selective BRAF inhibitor (BRAFi). No case reports, to our… Expand
